Youth Health Talk

YouthHealthTalk

The Practice will generate and sign all repeat prescriptions within 2 working days of receiving a request to do so, except where;

    •             the Practice has tried and failed to contact the patient where this is needed before the prescription can be issued safely, or
    •             where a medication review is pending and must be undertaken before the prescription can be issued safely. The request for a medication review will be highlighted on the patient’s most recent prescription.

The Practice aims to generate and sign repeat prescriptions within 24 hours of request but because of the need to ensure patient safety patients should allow 2 working days. The Practice will do its best to provide prescriptions in urgent circumstances but will not compromise patient safety to do so.

Some local pharmacies operate a delivery service. Patients should check with their preferred pharmacy. 

** Practice Repeat Prescription Ordering Policy **

The practice no longer accepts repeat prescription requests from pharmacies on behalf of patients. We are aware that the online pharmacy, ‘Pharmacy 2U’ is currently mailing Wakefield residents advising of the services that they can provide. Please note that our policy also applies to Pharmacy 2U and therefore if you choose to nominate Pharmacy 2U to dispense your medicines, you will still need to order your own prescription from the surgery.

All pharmacies are still able to collect your repeat prescription from the surgery once it has been processed and deliver your medicines to you if they offer these services.

Please be assured that the practice has not provided Pharmacy 2U with your details and that we are not affiliated to them in any way.
